2018 Tigers Preview: Catcher and DH.
James McCann found his bat, John Hicks emerged, while Victor Martinez battled health issues. What can the Tigers expect in 2018 from their catchers and DH?

February 12 in Tigers and mlb history:

1920: The National League votes 6-2 for a one-man commission while the American League votes 6-2 for the status quo. Chairman Garry Herrmann resigns, stating his belief that no club owner should serve on the governing board. When the two leagues cannot agree on a chairman, it is left to the league presidents to decide disputes.

1924: The National League announces it will join the American League in awarding a thousand dollars to the player selected by the Baseball Writers Association of America as the Most Valuable Player.

1932: George Weiss is named head of the Yankees' new minor league system. Weiss will eventually become the general manager of the Yankees, and along with manager Casey Stengel, will oversee an unprecedented five consecutive World Championships from 1949 to 1953. Weiss will eventually gain election to the Hall of Fame in 1971.

1955: In Caracas, Roberto Clemente and Willie Mays hit crucial home runs to lead the Santurce Crabbers of Puerto Rico to a 4 - 2 victory over Venezuela's entry, Magallanes, in the Caribbean World Series championship. Mays' homer comes in the 11th inning.

1957: The Detroit Tigers traded Chick King and cash to the Milwaukee Braves for Jack Dittmer.

1981: A contract violation by the Boston Red Sox makes All-Star catcher Carlton Fisk a free agent. In 1980, he batted .289 with 18 home runs and 62 RBI. Fisk will eventually sign a multi-year contract with the Chicago White Sox, for whom he will play during the balance of his career.

1982: The Detroit Tigers signed Jerry Turner as a free agent.

2014: SS Derek Jeter announces that the 2014 season, his 20th, will be his last one. Injuries have taken a toll of late, limiting him to 17 games in 2013. The team captain will retire as the New York Yankees' all-time leader in games played and hits.
